Lights not rendering, Please help!
I have a scene, and have renered some previous sections ok. However, upon coming to render now, the lights in the scene do not light the scene! I have deleted all the lights and added new ones but the scene remains black, (apart from the fog I have). The fog parameters have not altered, so it is not that, (tried it with fog deleted as well).

The scene renders fine in Mental Ray and the vector renderer, but not maya software! (I need the post effects!).

Any help much appreciated!

Maya 5.0.1

Hey Pilchard, sorry for the late reply on this, but I assume with no re-post from you that you solved the issue?

Let me know if you're still having problems.

For the project I was working on, I worked around it by importing the character into an blank version of the enviroment. It happened again a few times, so if you could help, it may save me re-posting at a later date when it happens again!

Many thanks, Richard.
